We have all heard about the Wisconsin recall elections, but this one has been under the radar until today. A recall against the Senate President has been successful in Arizona, and he will face a recall election on November 8. Pearce is the author of the racist Arizona law which required police officers to profile all Hispanics, assuming that any of them might be an illegal alien.Gov. Jan Brewer made it official today and ordered a special election for the recall of Senate President Russell Pearce to take place Nov. 8.
